FILM

"Battlefield Earth" Travolta's obsessed production of Hubbard's sci-fi Scientology novel is so fraught with weirdness that you just have to see it. From stilt-walking rastas-in-trenchcoats aliens to the extreme over use of the "dutch-tilt," critics hated it. But allegedly Lucas and Tarantino liked it. I can't wait for their rip-off/homage remake, 8:45 p.m., Dairy Arts Center, 2590 Walnut St., Boulder; $6-$11; 303-444-7328.
